What You Can Expect

Ouzoud Falls Day Trip from Marrakech

Drive through the spectacular Atlas Mountains on your way to the Ouzoud Waterfalls

You could almost forget you're in the middle of the desert once you see these stunning waterfalls! It's a bit of a trek from top to bottom but a great way to fully experience this wonderful oasis. You might even catch a glimpse of a macaque monkey among the trees! Start your day trip with a pickup from your Marrakech hotel. Hop inside your air-conditioned 4x4 or minivan and enjoy the views as you travel northeast to the village of Tanaghmeilt in the Atlas Mountains. Drive through desert hills past palm groves and old villages. As you travel, listen to fascinating facts about the Ouzoud Falls. Hear how their name translates as ‘grinding grain’ in the Berber language and how they rank as the highest natural waterfalls in north Africa.

On arrival, meet your professional and knowledgeable local guide in a walking tour of about one hour and follow the path to the lip of the falls. Then, behold the tiered cascades that tumble from different heights down into a natural amphitheater of red-colored rock cliffs. Absorb the roar of the cascades as you take photos, and with luck, see some of the Barbary apes that congregate by the water or one of the shimmering rainbows that form in the mists wreathed around the plunging waters. Visit several view points to drink in the setting, walk down steps to the base and explore the caves where water mills are used to grind wheat grain into flour — giving the falls their name. Having taken in the full beauty of the area, relax over lunch at one of the restaurants along the path to the falls with an amazing view. Lastly, enjoy your return journey to Marrakech, where your trip ends with a hotel drop-off.

This was a remarkably well-organised tour.

Our driver Ahmed was a very personable, polite and professional young man, who went out of his way to make sure that the long drive to Ouzoud Falls was interspersed with photo opportunities along the way. The scenery along the route was stunning in any case, and the short stop at the small olive oil press was enjoyable.

At the falls, Ibrahim took over and once again he impressed us with his professionalism and courtesy. He was also very knowledgeable about the falls, and the history of the Berbers who call the area home. He made the day truly memorable, picking routes and spots that gave us amazing views of the Ouzoud Falls, and some great photos to recall the day.

We would highly recommend this tour with Ahmed and Ibrahim as your hosts for the day!

The entire experience was amazing! Mustapha our driver was very personable so the ride both ways was easy breezy. He took the time to get to know us and interact with our children. Mustapha even entertained my photography passion, when we passed the market he let me get out and explore to capture a few candid moments My Hubby and kids were sleep. After the drive there we were introduced to Ibrahim the tour guide and began the hike. The falls and mountain landscape in general were absolutely breath taking! We were able to take our time as we soaked in all of the sights and sounds of the mountains. Ibrahim stopped along the hike to explain a few of the sights and cultural significance of the land. After a nice hike around the falls we stopped to dine at a restaurant tucked nicely into the mountain side. We had a table reserved with an amazing view of the falls. The food was delicious as well, traditional Moroccan tajine! After that we walked up the long flight of mountain steps along the falls back to the top. The best part of the trip for me was interacting with the monkeys and feeding them fruit and peanuts. Our children absolutely loved the monkeys!!! They were so cute and surprisingly gentle. The overall experience was very enjoyable, the natural beauty and the friendly locals made this trip a win, win, situation. When we visit Morocco again I definitely want to take this trip a second time, it was just a super cool experience. P.S. Everything was included in the price for the trip. Good Deal! Thank you Mustapha and Ibrahim...

Had a great trip to the Ouzoud Falls. Our driver Ahmed was very friendly, and a safe, cautious driver. Our tour guide Ibrahim was also very knowledgeable, and showed us around Ouzoud and the waterfalls. The lunch in front of the falls was spectacular!

Throughout my stay at Marrakech, this was the best sightseeing tour I enjoyed the most. It was breathtaking and blissful. It was also nice visiting the Berber village and having an authentic Morrocon meal for lunch overlooking the falls. I was accompanied by Ahmed who picked me up from the hotel on time and took me to the Ouzoud Falls. When I arrived there, Ibrahim took me and others for the excursion. Thank you so much Ahmed and Ibrahim who were always there to accompany us and thank you for all the knowledge and information you shared with us because I learned so much on that day. And both speak very fluent English. If I'm going to the Ouzoud falls again, I would like to have yall both again as my guide.
Thank you

This was a great day out, our driver Abdul was extremely knowledgeable and with much pride and passion for his role. Abduls English was perfect he passed his knowledge of the surrounding area as we drove and was a very professional driver. When we arrived at Ouzoud we were met by Ibrahim who guided us around the falls. Again you couldn't wish for a better guide. Ibrahim was local to the village, met everybody with a smile, and ensured we were taken to places to get stunning shots of the falls.
All in all an excellent day.
